Paris is Always a Good Idea

Everyone loves a good garter stitch shawl don't they? This one was originally conceived as a travel project for a planned trip to Paris with some knitting pals. A long cast on edge made for lots of fabulously easy knitting whilst lounging around in Parisian cafes, possibly eating a croissant. Unfortunately life intervened, I was ill and the trip went ahead without me - sniff - but I did have a wonderfully squishy and soothing knit to console me from my sick bed.

This sample is knit in the delightful Tamar 4ply from Blacker Yarns and I can confirm it is heavenly to work with, particularly in garter stitch and the fact that you need three contrasting skeins of yarn gives you an excellent reason to play with shades and colours. 

Plenty of garter stitch goodness...
